Abstract

Administration to newborn pigs of an oral or intraperitoneal dose of equine-origin Clostridium difficile antitoxin 4 hours before orogastric inoculation with a swine-origin C difficile field isolate resulted in lower histopathology scores 72 hours post challenge than in pigs receiving no antitoxin (P < .05).
